Painkiller


I'm in pain
I go to the doctor
He checks
Examines
Searches
Things look fine
He says
If there's a wound
I could treat
For you now
All I have's
A painkiller.

    no use of pain killer my dear, if there is union, thanks. our life is a fragment of the whole. let us go towards that whole, okay, we are going, feeling of pain on the way is but common, but really it is no pain it is joy, let us enjoy thoughtful one, thanks. (Report) Reply

    Pain can be cured by pain-killer but not the agony.I noticed you write poem on different theme, and that's very nice. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
